Testimonial for Jocelyn Skinner CD(DONA) LCCE

Initially my husband and I weren't really sold on the concept of a Doula but last-minute nerves got the best of me and I found myself searching for a Doula @ my 36week mark...needless to say I came in last minute with the need for a Doula. I looked around doulamatch and narrowed my options to 3 potentials. I met all three. Jocelyn was the last one I met and after our initial sit down, I knew she would be the one I would go with. There was something really easy about our conversation. I found her energy to be quite calming but I knew she would take her work very seriously based on how she answered my questions. I also want to point out that she was the only Doula that I spoke with that I felt educated me in a few areas. This picked my interest more because I love interacting with knowledgeable people. I had my baby at 38 weeks and 1 day so I didn’t get to have the 2 pre-meetings before labor day. We did have 1 pre-meeting and she gave us lots of tips for the main day. She also gave us exercises to work on! On the main day Jocelyn was fantastic. She really worked with my husband and I in a way that we felt like we were in good hands. She labored with us at our home mostly in the bath (this helps a lot!). By the time we got to the hospital, I was already 8 cm dilated. (WHOA!!!). In the hospital, she was equally great. She switched up laboring techniques a few times to figure out the best one for me. My husband felt that we couldn’t have gone through the day without Jocelyn. She was just superb. I think every first time mom needs one and it really helps if you get the right one. Go with Jocelyn, you wouldn’t regret it. Main pros of going with Jocelyn:affordable (I know this is relative), passionate, she doesn’t take a lot of clients in a given month, wealth of knowledge (maybe I just don't know much in this area but compared to the others I interviewd, I would say she knows her stuff), Calming spirit and easy to talk to
